I want to live life to the fullest with my family and friends and not be weighed down. I think I'm finally getting it. I have always been giving in and telling myself that I can start again tomorrow, what's one more day? But then, a month passes and I haven't changed at all. Today is the first day of the rest of my life, and a month from now there will be a big change.

For me, my overeating has nothing to do with being hungry. I will eat until I'm sick, and still want to eat. It also has nothing to do with being upset about something or wanting to be heavy because I want to blame my fat or use my fat to keep me from people or whatever. I get giant cravings. I just want the food the yummy tasty food. I fear that the cravings will never go away, and maybe they won't. But I can't stop trying to get heathy. But finding little tricks that help here and there do work for me. And exercising as much as possible helps too. And constantly knowing why I want to be thinner helps too. I want to be here for my kids. I want to see my grandkids someday. I want to fit on a rollercoaster. I want to go skiing again. I want to feel normal. A lot of times keeping all these things in my mind will help me from eating that ice cream. and it will make me do my exercises.

I haven't been treating this as a path I want to walk. I've been focusing on the results...not the journey. I know better than that. I need to walk a path. Thing is, I know how to do it. I KNOW how to lose weight. I just don't do it...or I lose momentum after a time.

"I can see it so clearly now. I'm trying to walk a path that for me is less traveled. So naturally it would be harder than just doing what I normally do. And it's easy to jump off my new path and land back on the one that got me here in the first place. So perhaps acknowledging this will help me to stay on track. Who knows? I guess I'll find out in a couple weeks." --from TOKENFATGUY

"But now, I have different reasons...different goals. I'm on a journey of discovery. I know I can never get my old body back. I've accepted that. But I can get a new body...one that is better than the one I carry. Just like the one I carry now is better than the one I had 6 weeks ago. I don't know what I will eventually become. But I'm excited about finding out...little by little. As my body changes, I pay more attention to it. I run my hands over myself and I can feel new muscle under the fat. I look in the mirror and although the changes are slow, if I watch carefully, I can see them. I'm not focusing on the end of the path...I'm focusing on the journey itself." -- from TOKENFATGUY

Who am I? I am a responsible and capable person. Today is a new beginning in my life and it is my decision where I will go. I cannot be defeated and I will not quit! The journey ahead of me may be long and hard. That mountain may get the best and worst of me, but I will never be alone! Success is starting where you are and moving forward. Doing something for myself today makes me move forward. Today I will say “Yes” to God and to my teammates. Today I will say “No” to the devil and the destructive patterns that have brought me to where I am in life. Today I will say “Yes” to my dream of being healthy and happy. It is not my will but Yours be done, Lord. Here I am Lord; mold me into the person you want me to be. Today I will love the Lord my God with all my heart and soul. Today I will love others as I love myself. Today I will support my teammates and lift them up with encouraging words. Today I choose to walk the straight and narrow path that few people find. Today I will keep my eyes set on Him.

    Please go to YOUTUBE.com and put in ABBA I Have a Dream
    so when this song plays you know it is for you from me. You are an angel.
    Happy Valentine's Day, Friend. The greatest gift in the world is to love YOURSELF, which isn't conceited, but smart, because when you do, you take care of you and then you can be there for those who love and need you, giving them the BEST of yourself.
    Hugs and many Valentine SPARKS!!!

    I'm glad you got your page up. You belong to some good teams! I watched OPRAH yesterday as her show was on "Does My Clutter Make My Butt Look Big" and how your home can reflect your obesity. I am working on my "body clutter" and know that it is all in the way of thinking about yourself.
    I'm so glad to be a SPARKER. We can do this!!!
